The majestic old Casino de Urca—Brazil’s most important entertainment center in the 1930s, at one point left to ruin on one of the city’s most spectacular sites—is now home to the European Design Institute. In addition to classes, open to all (even visitors), the EDI stages events inside the structure and on its terrace, as well as in what remains of the old casino’s amphitheater, with everything from fashion shows to theatre and concerts that will only get better with the auditorium’s complete renovation. A great way to top off your Urca visit, there’s also a Sardinian-style café and restaurant.The majestic old Casino de Urca—Brazil’s most important entertainment center in the 1930s, at one point left to ruin on one of the city’s most spectacular sites—is now home to the European Design Institute.
